"Bohemian Rhapsody," Muppet Style

It has a few surprising, and very pleasant, lesser used Muppets!

Hate ambiguous endings?

Small Worlds has been named the winner in the 6th Casual Gameplay Design Competition hosted, and created, by Jay is Games.

This competition's theme was explore, and that's what Small Worlds is about. You start with your little red guy in mostly darkness and as you move you reveal the world around you, your view of the whole expanding. The story is expressed in six words, five of which appear at the very beginning. There is a goal, but the rest is up to you, how you play and how you interprate the actions you take.

It's an intriguing... game? Piece of art? I'm not sure. All I do know is I wish it had lasted longer.

Gort is My Savior, Who's Yours?

From Scientology Losing Ground To New Fictionology:
Fictionology's central belief, that any imaginary construct can be incorporated into the church's ever-growing set of official doctrines, continues to gain popularity. Believers in Santa Claus, his elves, or the Tooth Fairy are permitted—even encouraged—to view them as deities. Even corporate mascots like the Kool-Aid Man are valid objects of Fictionological worship.


Hollywood actor David McSavage, who converted to Fictionology last year, attempted to explain.

"Scientology can only offer data, such as how an Operating Thetan can control matter, energy, space, and time with pure thought alone," McSavage said. "But truly spiritual people don't care about data, especially those seeking an escape from very real physical, mental, or emotional problems."

McSavage added, "As a Fictionologist, I live in a world of pretend. It's liberating."

Get Your War On.

Hyperion to a Satyr

Hyperion to a Satyr is a project blog from Siskoid delving deeply in to Hamlet.

From the introductory post:
This blog will look at Hamlet, scene by scene (or scene fragment, some scenes are just too long for single posts). First, we'll talk about the text itself, what staging and performance problems it poses, what ambiguities have been laid into it by, and so on. Then, the scene will be discussed through the filter of filmed versions of the play. How did each filmmaker or actor address the play's problems and ambiguities? What effect do their choices and cuts have on our understanding of the characters and their world? Now, if you search for Hamlet on IMDB, you'll find more than 70 iterations, and that's just for "exact title matches". I will not be using them all for this project. ... And in addition to movies, you can also expect Hamlet in other media, like comics, music and games.

He's looking at seven movies/filmed stage performances, two, what he calls, "plays withing plays," two versions done by Classics Illustrated, and a french rock opera. (He describes them all in his second post.)

Reading the blog when he posts -- which feels too slow, but, then, the quality of the posts are always high -- makes me wish I had all the material so I could watch along with him.

I highly recommend checking it out.
